The medicinal properties of bitter leaf are very widely known in sub-Saharan Africa. One of the many secrets passed on by grandparents has been forgotten in the frenzy of modern living. These healing qualities are derived from the many micro-nutrients that are important for the maintenance of human health and prevention of various diseases.
